For Christmas party style with substance check out Collection 8 at Phase Eight, a collection of limited edition evening dresses with a vintage flavour
The Cinderella dress is a sheer nude gown covered in an art-deco style gold sequinned pattern, whilst the black Petra dress features sheer capped sleeves, a lace panel at the waist and delicate beaded embellishment.
The dresses aren't cheap at £250 - £300 a pop, but for a special event that required full-length vintage glamour one of these intricately detailed creations might prove a worthy investment.
Take a closer look on the Phase Eight website here.
